Hey, this is very interesting SB for starters. I did almost zero art during college and day job and now that I'm working as graphic designer I'm working my ass to be an illustrator, so having little time is harsh but no imposible, keep the studies and illustrations, and like snatti said, start a transition to a job as an illlustrator.

your last painting the drop shadow below/left of the nose is very hard and the eyes need more deepon the tear duct so they don't look a bit flat

painting study is really good. i'm jealous of the simplification
the way you draw feet & shoulders bothers me. i feel like everything is coming together except them, they're sorta glaring for me...

otherwise hang in there....you'll be done school soon....hope everything is okay with your family etc.
let's keep fighting!!

Oh man, that foot study! :D I don't think a foot has ever made me so happy before. It'd be cool to see that level of finish on one of your girls though! (More of a suggestion than a crit, I guess.) Keep things coming! Really enjoying this sketchbook :)

Dat lost edges under the toes! Everything looks right in the study, and it's great to see that you're immediately tackling the problems you got some response on. Keep it up :)

Hai - :3 no. i do erase a bit. i wish i was Kim Jung Gi.


Another one.
was supposed to have a light shining on her face, but couldnt quite make it work.
the narrative doesnt really work without it. but it was fun to do.

funny how just like the last one the composition ended up squared.

what prevents you from having her face illuminated? Have you tried grayscaling it? I think it's really cute really

Yeah i was going for a graysclae, but it just looked odd without putting values to the rest of the piece, and i didnt had time for that.

Been pretty busy with life. so again, just quick stuff.

Cool sketchbook with lots of awesome stuff in it. :) I like your pencil sketches as well as your digital paintings and studies. This Firefly-thing looks very great! As well as these space and hospital -drawings. Great perspective skills. Keep up the great work!

Hey guys.

Im gonna be away from this place, for a while at least. I'm not sure if/when i'll come back.
I don't have the time right now to keep checking and posting on everyone elses threads, and I've been getting little to none actual feedback.
This place is no "CA.org on its glory days" and its hard to keep the energy up. Im busy, Cha is busy, Hannes isn't around anymore.
I sort of know what i need to do to improve, I just need the time to do it. And I've become friends with some of you and can always reach out for a critique.

If ya wanna get in contact theres my email, pedroamato93@gmail.com or just on fb as Pedro Amato.
I'll probably keep my Tumblr updated http://aragah.tumblr.com/

See you later, space cowboy!

Hey there. Sad to see you go! Although I completely understand why you're taking some time away, it has been pretty quiet here as of late. And I totally get not having the time to post. Best of luck for the future :)

Aw that sucks. Is this place really that dead? I haven't been too active in a while either but it's kinda sad seeing people leave who were around for a while (and grew quite a bit during their stay here).

And this was def one of my fav inspiration sketchbooks.

You're work is starting to look a lot like Algen's, actually.

I followed your tumblr after you quit and those two pieces where you used smudging (the landscape and the forest picture) really stood out to me.
It's a good look for you I guess. Do you feature that technique a lot in your professional work?
Also I think what holds your work back the most right now are your faces. I'd practice a more realistic size relationship between the features. Squished faces aren't equally cute on every character type lol
anyway just keep tappin it at your preferred speed, cause you're going places
